Over the last few years I have been making hand built ceramics that explores the interest I have in form and surface.
Having gained a Foundation Degree in Fine Art at North Tyneside Metropolitan College in 2005. I continued my education by doing a Foundation Degree in contemporary ceramics at Newcastle College, graduating in 2010. Through the medium of clay I have continued my Fine Art practice in the making of ceramics. My most recent design ideas are inspired by antique carved wooden furniture.
To make my surface decorations I take an impression in the clay from the wood, then transfer this onto my ceramics, which I then paint in a variety of colours to give my work a vintage look by enhancing them with decals.
